Natural Beauty: Mascara

My six-month-long-and-counting experiment in ridding my life of parabens continues, but I've had a few small victories along the way!

Finding natural products that work as well, if not better, than products with parabens has been a challenge.  Parabens help everything in cosmetics from being spreadable, extending their shelf life, and to not flake, to name a few...So finding products that work as well as paraben-laden junk has been tough.

But today I feel victorious, because I have found a mascara that's BETTER than any of that paraben crap!  It's Korres Provitamin B5 & Rice Bran Lash-Strengthening Mascara.  It's highly pigmented and is really layerable, plus it has virtually NO flakiness.  I wore this by the ocean, out in the sun, for an entire day and didn't even need a touch-up for dinner (my stinky armpits are another story!)

I also really like tarte's Natural Lights, Camera, Lashes! "push-up bra for your lashes" mascara.  It's not as pigmented as the Korres mascara, but it made my lashes suuuuuper long and luxe.  It's more of a night-time mascara, since it's pretty easy to Tammy Faye yourself with this stuff.  It's a bit flaky towards the end of the day, but if you're only wearing this at night, no one can see!

Do you have any paraben-free make-up that you love?
